2011 will see a range of franchising exhibitions open across the UK, providing information, support and guidance for those interested in investing in a franchise.

It is extremely important for people to fully research which of the many available business franchise opportunities is right for them, according to Franchise Magazine. Those who wish to do so could consider attending the Scottish Franchise Exhibition.

The exhibition is set to take place on May 19th, in Glasgow, and is accredited by the British Franchise Association (BFA). The event will include a Business Plan Clinic, focusing on the funding side of franchising. Also, an expert panel of successful franchisees will be on hand to answer any questions relating to their experiences with franchising.

For those interested in franchising in England, the Franchise on the Tyne exhibition is scheduled for January 29th at the Saville Exchange in North Shields. This will give visitors the chance to find out everything there is to know about the subject, and will feature a range of franchisers, franchisees and business advisers, from whom potential investors can obtain one-to-one advice and support.

FranchiseInfo revealed that the Growing your own Business Showcase & Conference will take place at London's Olympia in March. The conference, which was held in Birmingham in 2010, provides an excellent opportunity to gain advice from small-business experts and business leaders, as well as networking opportunities with seasoned professionals.

Lastly, the British Franchise Exhibition in Manchester provides the ideal arena to discover and share business ideas through discussions with successful franchisees in between a variety of seminars, presentations and workshops. The October event will also provide a thorough explanation of the ins and outs of franchising, including what exactly is expected of those investing and leading their own franchise.
